Spit and Sauce, Us

Got a chance yesterday to pop into the mac (still a week or so before the opening, and work being done all over the building) and taste the catering. Yum. The building re-opens to the public on May 1st, with loads of events, a very much refurbed bar and café and free wifi streaming out into the park.

The cinema, theatre and hexagon theatre have all had a spruce up and there’s now extra performance space around the building. Most impressive is the huge new gallery space — a vast room that already looks to be very flexible. The opening exhibition ‘Plug In’ is currently being installed, and features a ton of locally related art, including  a sound piece by Peter Cusack, photos by Stuart Whipps and this masterpiece too long out of sight:

It’s also got the Brum word cloud in situ — have a quick look on the mac blog.

But best of all I found out that the mac had once been the site of Bob Carolgees’s brief foray into the World of architecture:

    It’s open now. Day 1 was very busy but when we went it seemed to be coping with the influx very well. Everyone seemed genuinely excited. Which makes sense, it is an exciting development.
